It twists girl group tropes into something new...

Wolf Alice have shared their new single 'No Hard Feelings'.

The group's new album 'Blue Weekend' lands next month, with the release being pulled forwards to June 4th.

New single 'No Hard Feelings' leans on an unexpected influence, with Wolf Alice twisting elements from the Motown girl group songbook into fresh elements.

Slowing the pace, Ellie Rowsell seems to turn each word into a stand alone statement.

Discussing the song, she comments...

“I started out trying to make a really cheesy almost Motown-y, Ronettes kind of song about the end of a relationship, and feeling ‘What’s the point of being miserable about it?’ But it was short, because originally it was played so fast. I tried to make it longer, but I didn’t have any more words — I had said everything I wanted to say perfectly, and didn’t want to ruin it with more. So instead we slowed it down, and I felt way more moved by it like that.”

Directed by Jordan Hemingway, you can check out the video for 'No Hard Feelings' below.
